Ultra HD 4K Blu-ray Player

Reference-class with the ultimate in picture and sound quality
The UB9000 reference-class Ultra HD Blu-ray player uses Panasonic’s unique chroma and HDR processing technologies to reproduce images with cinema-level quality at home. This combines with a structure and components that pursue the highest possible audio quality, to bring you overwhelmingly beautiful pictures and sounds.

Unique imaging technologies for a Hollywood Cinema Experience; HCX Processor for Ultra HD Blu-ray
Panasonic's 4K PRO HDR model Ultra HD Blu-ray Player features an HCX Processor for Ultra HD Blu-ray packed with original imaging technologies for stunning picture quality. The precise colours and HDR reproduction that form the essential elements of Ultra HD are the basis of high-definition images. They bring you a whole new viewing experience that you've never had before.
* HCX stands for Hollywood Cinema Experience.
* Supervised by Panasonic Hollywood Laboratory

Experience stunning 4K pictures with Multi HDR Support
Panasonic Ultra HD Blu-ray Players support multiple HDR formats, such as HDR10, which is the standard HDR format for films, and UHD Blu-ray discs. They newly support HDR playback of HDR10+TM dynamic metadata, the next-generation standard. And they are compatible with Dolby VisonTM and Hybrid Log-Gamma. The synergistic effect achieved with Panasonic's original high-quality image technologies enables even more precise image expression.

HDR content with even greater realism; HDR Optimiser
Panasonic's original image processing technologies achieve HDR images with higher definition. Tone mapping is used to adjust the brightness level of the content. And even HDR images from ordinary HDR10 and TV footage, which do not support special new formats like HDR10+ and Dolby Vision, provide optimal playback.

Stunning colour and details; 4K High-Precision Chroma Processing
Technologies from Panasonic Hollywood Laboratory, the base for Blu-ray Disc Research & Development, are applied to Panasonic‘s unique “4K High Precision Chroma Processing.” 4K image colour signals (4:2:0) are interpolated into 4K (4:4:4) by a multi-tap chroma process, for natural textures and depth.

Theatre-level quality THX®-certified images and sounds
The THX®-certified model reproduces the finely nuanced colours and rich, detailed images that the film creator intended, and achieves lifelike surround sound. You can watch movies at home in quality like that which you enjoy at the cinema.

Reduce vibration for premium sound quality; Chassis with high rigidity and lower position for the centre of gravity
A newly developed drive base with a 3-dimensional, thick steel plate fixes the optical disc drive to the centre of the 2-layer chassis to reduce vibration and noise during disc rotation. And thick aluminium is used on the front and side panels. This raises the rigidity of the chassis, and reduces vibration.

Clear sound with minimal noise; AC/DC Conversion Circuit
The main power supply, which provides power to the optical drive and video signal processing circuits, generates a variety of low- to high-frequency noises. These occur, for example, when driving the motor during disc playback, accessing memory, and communicating between peripheral circuits. By separating the power for the audio D/A converter and analogue output circuit at their origin, the noise effects are reduced. In addition, soft switching control lowers the noise of the power supply itself.

Stable voltage and current supply for sound with minimal distortion; 10-Line Isolated DC Regulator Circuit
The digital and analogue power supplies for the D/A converter are isolated. The analogue channel is further separated into 2 channels and 7.1 channels, and for the 2-channel output, the reference voltage of the left and right channels is isolated, making a 10-line regulator circuit and reducing mutual effects to improve distortion. Moreover, high-quality audio grade electrolytic capacitors are used in the analogue channel to minimise noise.

Carefully selected audio parts achieve high quality sound; Special circuit board for analogue output
The analogue circuits for 2 channel and 7.1 channel output are mounted onto special glass-epoxy circuit boards. Together with the use of quality components, such as low-noise operational amplifiers and audio grade electrolytic capacitors, a totally balanced signal transmission is achieved by using differential circuits all the way from the D/A converter output to the XLR output terminal.

Versatile, high quality audio output terminals; 2 Channel (XLR/ RCA) and 7.1 Channel Output Terminals
The 2 channel and 7.1 channel output terminals are also separated. Moreover, the 2 channel output is equipped with a balanced XLR output terminal in addition to the RCA terminal.

Reference Design; The stylish design provides a high-quality presence
Thick aluminium treated with alumite is used for the front and side panels. This helps to reduce vibration and increase chassis rigidity to support high sound quality while providing a design that is ideally suited to a reference class model.

Compatible with 4K VOD
Because 4K internet video distribution is now supported by content such as NETFLIX, Prime Video and YouTube, a wide variety of high-quality content is at your fingertips. The high-definition internet video signals are processed by Panasonic's original 4K High-Precision Chroma Processor to achieve crisp, beautiful images.
